"Autotest"

PostPost by: StressCraxx » Sat Dec 18, 2004 1:26 am

Here in the US an autotest is called a gymkhana, the name comes from a contest involving the agility of a horse and rider in a closed obstacel course.

I used to run gymkhanas in my Datsun (Nissan 510) in college. It is even harder on the clutch and gearbox than autocross/slaloms (sprints). Gymkhanas differ from autocross because they force the intentional use of reverse gear.
